Frontex Reloaded: Creating a Monster

Plenary Speech

Strasbourg, 5 July 2016

The European Border Agency “Frontex” will get more power to deter refugees attempting to flee to Europe. Instead of providing medical care, shelters and fast asylum procedures, we are allowing Frontex to stop and return refugees even outside of the European Union. But instead of punishing refugees, we should be targeting the root causes of migration: war, poverty and inequality.
